Bugatti Veyron is approaching the end of its life as a production car, as the 400th unit finds a new home somewhere in the Middles East. This means just 50 units are still available. So if you always coveted one, you better start working harder. A lot harder.
The 400th Bugatti Veyron is a is a Grand Sport Vitesse “Jean-Pierre Wimille” of the six-part edition “Les Légendes de Bugatti”, a series of six special edition model of each three units are made, paying homage to the most important names in Bugatti history. The buyer paid €2.13 million for it.
Most of the sold Veyrons, especially in recent years, are special editions, and almost all of them unique in one way or other. When you buy a car that costs from $1.5 million to well over $2.5, you are going to make sure every last detail is to your liking.
With all the different editions and variants, the production of the Veyron is limited to 450 units. The production run of the Coupe has already ended with all the 300 hardtops – consisting of Veyron 16.4 with 1,001 PS and the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport with 1,200 PS – sold since the introduction of the car in 2005. The remaining 150 are all Roadsters, of which 100 have been sold.
Bugatti achieved an incredibly tall order with the Veyron. They rewrote the rule book by creating the first production car that is capable of doing 400+ km/h; is not harder to drive than a hatchback; and is as reliable as a Honda Accord. Good news is, there is a replacement already in the works. Although we cannot fathom how it can possibly be better than the Veyron. Is it possible to can go any further than this?
